Wanted Slightly fuller upper lips - Update two months post surgery
I think in the long haul, this is a good procedure and I'll be happier with results once I can fully smile again. All best to those undergoing the upper lip lift. Please note it is a 4 to 6 month recovery.
Likely my last photo for RealSelf-unless something drastic changes.
Dr. Gary Horndeski was courteous and straight forward. I wasn't sure exactly how much I wanted taken off, so he was conservative with me. The procedure went superbly and I felt confident he knew what he was doing. My roscea flared immediately so these post pix look awful. I will return and post one with makeup in a week - just wanted everyone to see up close pix to get the gist of swelling, uneven nostrils, and scar. The nostrils improve daily, swelling is now minimal and albeit my scar is visible, I'm only 9 days out. Nose still feels numbish, but the swelling continues to dissipate daily, helping the nostrils look normal again. In 2 more weeks, I'm hoping to look much better. Please use sunscreen - as even a few minutes in the sun can intensify your scar.
